Deceit. Treachery. Revenge. And other family values.


Two extraordinary actresses return to Manhattan Theatre Club in a vibrant new production of Lillian Hellman’s The Little Foxes. In a thrilling coup, MTC will present three-time Tony Award® nominee Laura Linney (Time Stands Still, Sight Unseen) and Tony winner Cynthia Nixon (Rabbit Hole, Wit), who will alternate playing the roles of Regina and Birdie in Lillian Hellman’s legendary play about greed and ambition. Set in Alabama in 1900, The Little Foxes follows Regina Giddens and her ruthless clan, including her sister-in-law Birdie, as they clash in often brutal ways in an effort to strike the deal of their lives. Far from a sentimental look at a bygone era, the play has a surprisingly timely resonance with important issues facing our country today. Tony winner Daniel Sullivan (Proof, Rabbit Hole) directs.

Laura Linney and Cynthia Nixon are both scheduled to appear in every performance, however they will alternate in the roles of “Regina” and “Birdie.” Read more and see a calendar here.

Running Time: 2 hours, 25 minutes, with 2 intermissions

Additional support for Lillian Hellman’s The Little Foxes is provided by the Blanche and Irving Laurie Foundation.
